Reflection from Marriage Matters


Fourteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time (Zech 9:9-10 Rom 8:9, 11-13 Matthew 11:25-30)

‘Yoked’ to Him we are not overburdened

A ‘yoke’ keeps oxen together when carrying a heavy load or ploughing a field. On the day you married you chose to be ‘yoked’ together ‘till death us do part’. The burdens of life can lower your spirits and create a barrier to intimacy in your relationship. Jesus says: “Stay ‘yoked’ to me and I will help you, however heavy the load.”
